Church Weekend 2020


To provide an opportunity for our church family to connect, grow and develop new friendships across the generations through fellowship, teaching of God’s Word and time spent together.


Castlewellan Castle is situated in the middle of an extensive forest park on the edge of the Mourne mountains, with some of the most beautiful and breathtaking scenery in Ireland. It overlooks a lake of nearly 1 mile in length, with the mountains of Mourne climbing behind.

The facilities provide the option of ensuite rooms, as well as recreational space and resources.Arrangements have also been made with the nearby Burrendale Hotel (Castlewellan Road, Newcastle) for additional ensuite rooms (£150pps for B&B and Saturday night dinner). Please book your room directly with them after paying your £5 deposit for weekend to HRBC.


This can be a significant event for many associated with HRBC and the church does not want anyone to be deterred from coming for financial reasons. In an attempt to alleviate that particular pressure it is proposed  that the costs will be covered by:

  • A non-refundable deposit when booking;
  • A free-will donation as individuals feel led. This may be, and indeed it is hoped will be, gift–aided by those who are tax-payers.

It is the intention that this approach will cover the costs without putting anyone under undue financial pressure. More information is available on the Weekend Information Sheet.

Please note: due to high demand ensuite rooms at the castle are no longer available online. If you need an ensuite room, please speak to Keith.
